Once you have opened your five lower chakras several times you can power up your throat chakra. As this chakra opens, imagine it becoming brighter and brighter. This chakra may be an electric blue, shading to a softer turquoise. Allow yourself to experience its purity. This may feel like a breath of fresh air passing through your being. Feel your entire body glowing, energized and vitalized.
Each day before you get up, do the exercise of opening this chakra, Imagine yourself communicating very pleasantly, clearly and persuasively. See yourself truly listening to the other person also, really empathizing with what they want you to understand. See yourself thinking this through clearly, weighing it up fairly, and putting your answer into well-chosen words.
Around you there is an aura of calm and reasonableness. You can imagine this as a soft blue aura. You are peaceful and balanced. As well as listening to others you are able to hear the voice of your own intuition, the voice of your own logic, also. Being calm and relaxed, you can assess things in a detached way, so getting better results.
If you have an interview coming up, pay special attention to your throat chakra. Practice opening your first five chakras and then focus on your throat chakra. Do the visualisation exercise above and then imagine the interview going well. You communicate confidently and lucidly, you are composed and you listen carefully to what is said. If you don’t immediately understand, you ask for an explanation. Imagine an atmosphere of calmness and friendliness, smiles and approval, and imagine hearing that you have been successful.
If you have to give a talk, once again do the exercise, imagining the throat chakra opening and shining. See yourself speaking clearly, at just the right speed, smiling, relaxing and coming across as warm but authoritative. When your talk is finished, picture applause and/or approval.
You .an set your alarm clock so you spend five to ten minutes on this. When you finish, remember to close your chakras down thoroughly.
To keep this chakra functioning well, wear something blue each day, even if this is only a scarf. A blue tie, necklace or brooch would be perfect. Wear blue jewellery – a lapis lazuli, aquamarine or blue sapphire ring for instance. When you get home, light a blue candle and relax for a while, thinking about the times in the day you have communicated well, and listened attentively. List these and form them into a scroll that you bind with blue ribbon. Repeat this daily or weekly, but do it regularly. If you feel your communication has been muddled, angry or anxious, breathe this out, affirming those negative experiences have gone. You have learnt from them. Now look at the candle and imagine breathing in confidence and clarity.
You can also power your throat chakra by eating blue foods. These are hard to find, but do exist in blueberries and some cheeses. There may be other foods you can find in the supermarket that have a blue hue about them. Grow blue flowers and have pictures around you of blue skies. Soon you will have the good communication you want, but always use this responsibly. Chakra power is spiritual power, it is power to, not power over. If you want it to continue and to feel good about yourself, use it for the good of all.
